Forex Regulatory Bodies

What are regulators?

Regulators are either governmental or independent financial institutions that supervise and control the FX industry, thereby ensuring the protection of traders.

Does it matter if a broker is regulated or not?

If your money matters to you, then it also matters if a broker is regulated. If an FX broker is not regulated by an appropriate financial institution, it means that there is no guarantee that your investment is secure or protected.
